Why should everyone want the same thing as you?

I did not say that.
I said there is NO reason for the others.

D800xv: 36MP, 5fps, HD video, D3s metering and AF

The reasonable choice.

D800x: 36MP, no video, D3s metering and AF, built in GPS, high speed tethering

There is no reason to NOT have video. So this one would never be produced.

D800s: 16MP, no video, full D4 metering and AF

Scarifying the high DR from a 36MP sensor for a better meter? That is just stupid, that little difference in exposure could be fixed in post by utilizing the better DR.

D800sv: 16MP, 8fps, HD video, D3s metering and AF

Nikon would reserve the high FPS FX for the D4. A dx-model would have to do if you cant cash up. I doubt you would care about the extra weight, if you need 8 fps.
